New Fishy Faces

We’ve got three new Fishy faces to introduce you to and we’re delighted to have them swimming alongside the Shoal!

Dorren has been super excited about becoming a Fish since before we’d even spoken with him, so he’s really looking forward to being part of a brilliant team where he can swim in the right direction.

Alex Reily joins our Senior Management Team as Marketing Manager in our Growth team. He brings a shoal load of leadership experience and enthusiasm to the team!

Last but certainly not least, Katie Edisbury is swimming into the Customer Team as our newest Customer Support Executive. Katie has great experience in recruitment and wanted to put her fins to something new!

Welcome aboard everyone, it’s great to have you here with us!

You’re A Winner Fishy!

It feels like yesterday that we were announcing Fish and Team of the Year; how is it May already?!

As always, our Fish of the Month award was tightly contested in April, with many great Fish in the mix to be crowned champion!

However, there can only be one winner, so congratulations to Stewart, out Data Technical Expert, who has continued to smash it out the pond since his Fish of the Year win in December last year.

Stewart has been leading the charge in our Data Team, completing migration after migration and doing a fin-tastic job of leading our #lovethefish Focus Group over the previous six months. I think he may be going for two Fish of the Year wins, in a row… can anyone stop him?

Our Operations Team took home the Team of the Month crown in April and it’s fin-ominally well deserved!

Our Talent team delivered another fin-ominal Focus Day for the Shoal and have been driving our recruitment and culture forward with new and innovative approaches.

Not to be outdone, our Finance and Compliance Team have also levelled up their game, bringing in new processes, overseeing migrations from legacy systems and not dropping the ball once – it’s a team effort so well done everyone in Ops

May the Fourth be with You!

What better way to celebrate World Star Wars Day than pitting our Shoal against each other in an all-outbattle of ultimate Star Wars knowledge!

It turns out we have quite a few Star Wars fans amongst the Shoal, with many Fish vying for the title of StarWars Encyclopaedia, but there can only be one winner! So, congratulations to Andrew Watson, Senior Marketing Executive, who blew the rest of the competition out of the pond with his unparalleled Star Wars smarts!

The rest of the podium deserves a shout out as well as it was such a hotly contested quiz; Stephen Miller, Scott Sorbie, David Connolly, and Alex Reily – well done to everyone, it was a great effort all round!
